Scheduled the appointment with Dr. Woloszyn, based on good ratings, but regret about it. The doctor seemed very pleasant, but he scheduled a lot of tests, which might not be necessary, so had to come second time to do the tests. And when came third time for test results, was given an injection in the wrist, and he PIERCED NERVE. The pain was severe and unbearable. He had to stop right away, I was screaming of pain, but he continued!!! Not something to expect from an experienced doctor. No empathy, negligent. And after all, the new pain on the top of an old one. Can not recommend this doctor.

I had two surgeries with Dr. Woloszyn. I would recommend if you need hand surgery, he is the one to see. Today if you look at both surgery sites, no scarring at all. Dr Woloszyn answers all your questions. One goes into surgery without a worry.

My experience with Dr Woloszyn was excellent. He explained everything perfectly regarding my condition, the surgery, and what to expect post operatively. My pain level was minimal, relieved by Advil or Tylenol. His bedside manner is kind, forthright and caring. The staff at both the office and hospital were wonderful. I very highly recommend Dr Woloszyn.

My experience with Dr.Woloszyn was amazing! He and his staff are a pleasure to work with. I couldn't have made a better choice. After having surgery on both hands and just a short initial recovery period I feel like a new person! I highly recommend anyone suffering with carpal tunnel to go see him. He will change your life.

Dr Woloszyn came highly recommended from my nephew who had worked with him at a Surgery Center. I went with total Numbness in my hand, I also had a Trigger finger. Dr Woloszyn is amazing, I went home the day of the Surgery with 90% feeling in my hand. It is now 10 weeks after the surgery and the numbness is totally gone. I have full feeling in my hand. The trigger finger is getting better and better as the days go by. I am 100 % totally satisfied with choosing Dr. Woloszyn. He is the Best!!!

Deciding to go to Dr. Woloszyn was an excellent choice. He is very warm, friendly and caring. Took time to patiently explain the injury, the course of treatment and the healing process. There was never a long wait time and the staff was also friendly and accommodating.

Dr. Woloszyn is a straight talking physician who provides clear and concise information. After seeing a couple of other doctors for a stubborn tendon injury it was in fact Dr. Woloszyn who helped to move me along in the healing process with an aggressive, informed approach that yielded the results I had been hoping for.

I had carpal tunnel endoscopic release surgery on my hand by Dr. Wolosyzn. The procedure was quick and painless. I was able to regain use of my hand in 10 days and now it's been 6 weeks and my hand is just about 100% functional without numbness. I highly recommend Dr. Wolosyzn to anyone with chronic carpal tunnel pain.

Dr. Woloszyn is an excellent and caring surgeon. His level of attentiveness pre-op, during surgery, and post-op is exemplary. He thoroughly explained all details of my diagnosis, subsequent surgery, and healing process. The office is run efficiently and waiting time is minimal. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a good hand surgeon.

I recently had very successful surgery on my right hand with Dr. Woloszyn. Dr. Woloszyn is a competent, patient and kind surgeon. His explanation of the treatment procedures and healing process were impeccable. I have clean scars, no issues and healed well. Needless to say, if I have future hand issues, I will return to Dr. Woloszyn.

The doctor is soft spoken and seems to be a nice man. His decision making and practice is based on economical decisions. He does not keep meds in his office to provide a steroid shot but instead gives you an Rx for the medication and you must go get it and come back with an additional copay to do a common office procedure, giving no anesthesia (OMG). Bad for the patient. Inexcusable. Nickel and diming! He will cut extra on anyone symptoms or not! No way I recommend his practice. I am a Dr also.

Dr. Woloszyn performed hand surgery on me yesterday morning to remove 3 sea urchin stingers (and the hard cysts that formed around them) from my left hand. The doctor and his team at his NJ operating facility were FANTASTIC. I was very comfortable, well taken care of, and had all of my questions answered whenever I had any. They were patient and kind. A car service came and picked me up and dropped me off after the surgery, which was nice. I was seen on time, no waiting. All in all VERY happy.
